Two House Panels Launch Investigation Into FBI's 2016 Decisions

Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the Federal Bureau of Investigation had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering created to grow Vladimir Putin's atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

They also want to find out why the FBI made a decision to formally notify Congress of the probe on two separate occasions and why the FBI - as opposed to the Justice Department - recommended that Clinton not be charged at the conclusion of the investigation. "This may be good politics, but it is a disservice to the far more important cause of investigating Russian interference in our democracy and protecting our elections in 2018 and beyond from outside influence".

What was the uranium deal?

In a C-SPAN interview Monday, Clinton said the new focus on the uranium deal is "baloney" and evidence that the Trump administration is anxious and trying to deflect attention away from the ongoing probes into the Trump team's alleged ties to the Kremlin. "We're not going to jump to any conclusions at this time", House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes says.

The deal in question involved a wealthy Clinton Foundation donor named Frank Giustra, who sold his uranium-mining company, UrAsia, to Uranium One in 2007, according to Politifact.

In 2010, a Canadian company called Uranium One, which had mining stakes around the world, was bought by Rosatom, a state-owned Russian corporation, giving Rosatom oversight of one-fifth of US uranium production.

The Hill's report - which was immediately picked up by conservative media outlets and characterized as "the REAL Russia collusion story" - also piqued the interest of Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen.

Nunes has become a focal point of such efforts before.

Nunes, who stepped aside from his panel's Russian Federation probe amid controversy in April, said the uranium inquiry was a separate matter.

The GOP announcements come as the House intelligence committee is interviewing President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and campaign digital director Brad Parscale Tuesday.

"Well, the current Russian Federation investigation is about the election". He stressed that his focus, at the time of the deal and now, was primarily driven by concerns about "why 20 percent of the U.S.'s uranium supply was being given to a Russian-owned company".
